U-turn: Indecisive Apple removes Samsung's Galaxy S21 from Beats Studio Buds ad

Surprise or not – what Apple’s done, however, is perhaps even more impactful and telling. As of today, the image of a model holding a Galaxy S21 in one hand while listening to music on the new Beats Studio Buds isn’t up on the product’s Amazon page anymore!

Interestingly, the photo that featured the Galaxy S21 hasn’t been replaced with another image. Instead, now there’s just a gap between the two different paragraphs as if it’s there to illustrate the broken relationship between Apple and Android, or at least Apple and Samsung…

Apple or Beats’ actions don’t necessarily mean the image was a “mistake”, but it shows that they definitely didn’t like that it made headlines. We definitely can’t blame them, but also – why was the photo there in the first place? It looked too intentional to be an error and too strange to be true.

Frankly, we still aren’t sure what to make of it, but one thing’s certain – Apple doesn’t seem to like being associate with Android too much. Perhaps, just enough to sell Beats earbuds to Android users, but not enough to use Samsung phones for advertising them.

It’s also worth pointing out that Apple’s support page on Apple.com now uses an LG G6 for illustrations. That’s not too bad – at least it’s not the LG G Stylo 6, which made an ugly cameo next to an iPhone 12 during WWDC. Is Apple trying to say “Android is dead” by using an LG phone for its Beats Studio Buds support pages? Maybe…

In the end, we’re curious to see how this one develops, and we’ll keep you updated in case Apple reaches out to us or updates the Beats Studio Buds ad with new photos.
